FCW Insider: Another response to Kelman's FCW musings

This missive comes to us from Anne Armstrong, the president of the 1105 Government Information Group, FCW's parent organization. She is responding to a recent blog post by FCW blogger Steve Kelman.


If there is question in anyone’s mind whether blogs posted here are censored or edited, this should answer it. No, they are not. It’s not like Steve Kelman doesn’t have my phone number or e-mail address. So, I have to assume the message is intended for a broader audience, but I’m not sure at whom it is directed.


I posted an entry on FCW Insider last week bemoaning the campaign against federal workers arriving on schedule with the election. I’m already on record on this issue.


FCW has a long history of providing accurate, responsible comment in our editorials. We believe Government Executive and Federal Times strive to do the same.


The purpose of an editorial is to take sides and support a point of view or course of action. We are glad that Steve agrees, but we suspect many informed executives in the community occasionally disagree. It’s the nature of the debate.


We acknowledge and value Chris Dorobek’s contribution, but responsible comment preceded him and will continue after him. If you have a candidate for the job, by all means, send the resume over.
